Mozart at the Museum: Stravinsky’s l’Histoire de Soldat (The Soldier’s Tale)

7pm, Thursday, April 18
Springfield Museum of Art
$43 general admission (limit 200 guests)

In L’Histoire du Soldat, Stravinsky provides a musical setting of the legend of Faust, in which a returning WWI soldier sells his violin to the devil in return for the promise of fortune and wisdom. The devil, however, has much more in store for this young man. This chamber work will feature members of the Springfield Symphony Orchestra, three actors providing narration, and a dancer.
